The people who developed both are either not known in the first case, or many and varied in the second.
Strictly speaking, 'creationism' is a doctrine that was developed in response to Darwin's Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection and other scientific advances. There have been so many strands of creationism, notably 'Old-Earth' creationism and 'Young-Earth' creationism, that it is unclear who really started the movement, but this was probably in the second half of the nineteenth century, after Charles Darwin published On the Origin of Species. It has been said that what really sparked the modern creationist movement was the publication in 1961 of the book titled The Genesis Flood, written by Henry Morris and John Whitcomb.

The first known usage of the word Creationism was by Darwin (in 1856), who used the term "Creationists" to describe contemporary proponents of Creation such as Philip Gosse. Gosse and other 19th-century religious scientists were responding to the atheistic or naturalistic ideas of the time; but actually in a fundamental sense, Creationism may be said to be as old as Adam, since the ancients all believed that the universe had a supernatural source.

Technically, there is no such thing as scientific creationism. Creationism is per definition un- or even anti-scientific.
The scientific view on creationism is that there is no scientific evidence supporting it.
Answer By definition creationism is theistic.
Creationism is the belief that the account of the origin of things given in the Bible is the exact and literal truth.
What did Thomas Aquinas say about creationism? "Creationism" as it is used today didn't exist in Aquinas's time; hence, he had no explicit position on it. Of course, he believed that the Christian God created the world.
Creationism is the basis of all religions, it is what science says is not true. Teaching it in a public school is illegal.
In Focus - 2009 Creationism was released on: USA: 10 December 2012
Creationism, as a belief, a philosophy and a mindset, would be defined as an abstract noun; creationism as an event or a process would be a concrete noun. Nouns have no opposites; you cannot get "negative-creation" in the same way as you can get 1 and -1.
indeed I do, but creationism belongs in religous education whereas Evolution belongs in science
Creationism can be taught in public schools in America after the Supreme court ruling of Stone v. Graham.
Creationism can and should be taught in a sociology classroom setting, but not in a science classroom like some people want it to be. The reason for this is that creationism is not a scientific theory or even principle, it's part of cultural mythology.
1) In order to reconcile Creation with Evolution, Old-Earth Creationism holds that God made the universe and then guided Evolution over long epochs.2) In repudiation of Evolution, Young-Earth Creationismholds that God created the universe and living things relatively recently without the use of Evolution.See also the Related Links.Link: Evidence for CreationLink: Can you show that God existsLink: God's wisdom seen in His creations
Creationism IS taught in public schools. There are many forms of creationism taught in mythology classes. Creationism, itself, is explored in philosophy classes. Biblical creation is taught in English and literature classes. Musical interpretations of Genesis are taught in music classes. Creationism is not taught in science classes because it is not supported by any scientific evidence whatsoever. It makes no verifiable predictions. It also has no practical application.
OEC is an umbrella term for various ideas on the Creation. These include the Gap Theory and Progressive Creationism. Suggest you look it up via the phrase 'old earth creationism' as it it too long to summarize here.
There are unlikely to be questions about creationism in standardized tests, unless the subject for the tests is religion.For more information about creationism and its relationship to traditional religion and to the teaching of science, please visit: http://christianity.answers.com/theology/the-story-of-creation
Most religions are creationist. Think of any religious wedding ceremony. Usually creationism isn't even mentioned.
The Institute for Creation Science and Answers in Genesis are just two organisations that have speakers available to give lectures on Creationism.
No. Teaching creationism alongside evolutionary theory would suggest that they are equivalent explanations. They are not. Evolutionary theory is a well-established scientific model; creationism is a religious myth, and should be taught as such.
Evolution does NOT involve creationism.Evolution is a testable and therefore provable explanation as to how the diversity of life on earth has happened.Creationism is a religious viewpoint and therefore a mater of faith.AnswerI agree with the above. Evolution does NOT involve Creationism. Evolution is a branch of biological science and thus rejects "supernatural" claims such as those of Creationism, does not need to consider them. Creationism, often hanging on Genesis, the first book of the Bible, predates scientific inquiry and the scientific method and so is thus rejected by science and thus evolutionary science. In the public spotlight, the so-called Evolution-Creation "controversy" and all the on-stage arguments and debates might make it seem as though Evolution and Creationism (and Intelligent Design) have a lot to do with one another, but I doubt Creationism gets much mention at all in scientific laboratories and scientific conferences (it can't because it hasn't got anything to say about the real world.)
When God created the world haha :)
